What is your favorite simplifying, compacting, eco-friendly, wardrobe refashioning, down sizing, decluttering blogs?

I have recently discovered blogs and am in love and would like to hear what others are reading.

My blog goes in phases. When I first started blogging I covered a lot of that stuff, but right now it is quite heavily focused in gardening and producing fruit and veges (we are now in summer). I was inspired by MDC's Delight (walk slowly, live wildly - there's a link on my blog) - her blog has also changed focus in recent times too as her journey has moved on. But back this time last year her blog was full of this stuff too.

It's a Delight-Filled Life.

I've got one. I've enjoyed it-- gets all the thoughts in my head down so they can settle.

Here's the link. :

My blog is about balance. It is about my problems with looking like a yuppie on the outside and feeling granola inside. :

No Impact Man is about a family of three living in NYC and trying not to make any impact on the earth.

I'm always on the lookout for new blogs to read. Interested to hear what everyone else is reading.

No, grup. I was JUST THINKING "am I a thread killer?"

I plan on wearing it like a badge of honor.

( to my fellow crunchy, veggie Mormon mumma, maggie!)

I am making big changes in 2008, as well. (Most of them are posted on my blog, and lots of them were stolen from maggie's blog. : )

*Eliminate at least 2008 items from my home over the course of the next year.

*Continue to acquire/improve skills that will help me to be more self-sufficient.

*Be braver.

Visit www.evolutiontosimplicity.blogspot.com to follow my epic saga of single mummahood....

I am committed to 2008 in 2008 as well as compacting in 2008. I anticipate starting to post regularly on a blog journaling my journey with the changes.

When I start my blog I will post my link here.

I just started a blog, We Don't Buy It. I am really excited about the idea of compacting and am talking about how we succeed and fail at that and whatever else I see that is interesting to me and, I hope, to others.

I've already learned a lot about blogging in itself and my kids have learned that our life is pretty much the same without buying anything new.

If you visit my site, could you please vote in the poll? "What seemingly dangerous thing would you let a kid do? Ages 7 and up"

Thanks.:

I will post by blog link tomorrow.

I am a bit intimated by the wonderful blogs that I read but I am going to step outside my comfort zone and let you guys see the blog I am able to do.

Semi-offtopic - I just got a blog at blogger too, but I cannot figure out everything. For instance, how do you get "widgets" or get your flicker photos on there? And how do add a list of links or other blogs that you read?
